It is impossible not to think about the relationship between two stars with sizzling chemistry on the screen. After all, it feels like there is no way that it was all pretending. In our opinion, some kissing scenes are too good to be fake. Fair enough, actors and actresses are essentially professional pretenders. However, the truth is that there are things that you can’t chalk up to the talent. The truth is that there is nothing weird about Hollywood stars embarking on a relationship with one another. In and of itself, there is nothing wrong with that. This only turns into an issue when at least one of them is already committed or married. These movies have resulted at the end of their former marriages and relationships. In the Golden Age of Hollywood, stars were less discreet about their affairs. While celebs now keep it on the down-low, it still happens. Many of these dalliances take place on movie sets!
Cleopatra – Richard Burton And Elizabeth Taylor
Elizabeth Taylor and Richard Burton starred in Cleopatra together, but they were not a dream team at first. In fact, they hated each other. According to her, he was “brutish and boorish.” He, on the other hand, called the actress “Miss Tits.” Things improved as soon as they shared their very first kiss. They kept at it even when the cameras were not around. The problem was that they were both married at the time. She was on her fourth marriage to Eddie Fisher, while he was married to Sybil Williams. Once the news got out, their marriages both ended in divorce. In 1964, the two stars became man and wife. They got a divorce a decade after that but remarried one another in 1975. Within a year, things ended between them for good.
Mr. & Mrs. Smith – Brad Pitt And Jennifer Aniston
It is not exactly a secret that Brad Pitt and Jennifer Aniston’s marriage fell apart due to Mr. And Mrs. Smith. She sent in the divorce papers months before the premiere of the movie. In the filing, she cited “irreconcilable differences.” He later said that he “fell in love” with his costar Angelina Jolie while working on the movie. This was initially a rumor, but both of them confirmed it. She said that they had insane chemistry, but she was unsure because he was a married man. “It took until, really, the end of the shoot for us, I think, to realize that it might mean something more than we’d earlier allowed ourselves to believe,” she said. “And both knowing that the reality of that was a big thing, something that was going to take a lot of serious consideration.” They went on to be known as Brangelina.
To Have And Have Not – Humphrey Bogart
Humphrey Bogart and Lauren Bacall are known as one of the greatest couples in Hollywood’s history these days. Before their relationship, they had been friends. Well, not exactly. After all, we would not use that word to describe costars who held hands and kissed. They worked on To Have and Have Not together, but others could not help but notice the chemistry between the 44-year-old actor and the 19-year-old actress. Dan Seymour, their costar, said, “We knew things were happening. He had that sort of smile you can still see on the screen.” Back then, Bogart was still married to Mayo Methot. His wife was not pleased to hear about this. In the end, he was able to get out of the toxic marriage. Bogey and Bacall tied the knot not long after this. They stayed together until he passed away in 1957.
The Outlaw Josey Wales – Clint Eastwood
There was a time when Clint Eastwood was one of the hottest heartthrobs in the industry. His most famous relationship had been the one that began on the set of The Outlaw Josey Wales. Back then, he was married to Maggie Johnson. His civil status did not get in the way of his affair with costar Sondra Locke. They even went on to cohabitate, but things did not end happily ever after. In fact, there was a lot of resentment by the end of it. This relationship still deserves to be on the list because it did result in his divorce from his previous wife. Learn more about this intriguing affair in “The Good, the Bad, and the Very Ugly.” This is the title of the memoir written by Locke herself.
Days Of Thunder – Tom Cruise
The truth was that Tom Cruise and Mimi Rogers were already having problems even before he began to work on Days of Thunder. His affairs certainly made the marriage rocky. In the end, their fate was sealed when he started an affair with costar Nicole Kidman. The couple parted ways a month into the production of the film. An executive at Scientology said that a leader at the organization by David Miscavige’s name was a part of the problem. You see, he was feuding with Rogers’ dad. We have nothing to add to that, but Cruise and Kidman became man and wife not even a year after they first met.
By The Sea – Brad Pitt And Angelina Jolie
We already talked about the beginning of the relationship between Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie. Isn’t it apt for us to talk about the end of their marriage as well? In 2015, the two of them worked together on By the Sea. Upon its release, the actress called it a “test” of the marriage. In the end, it felt more like a documentary. Rumors claim that her “dark side” led to the end of the relationship. The actress admitted that they feuded on the set of the flick. She divorced him a year after its release.
The Misfits – Marilyn Monroe And Arthur Miller
After four years of marriage, Arthur Miller and Marilyn Monroe worked on a project with each other. They worked on The Misfits, but its pressure proved too much for the couple. He penned it to help her with her career, but she was displeased by his constant rewrites and sexism. If you read the biography “The Passion and the Paradox,” you will see that she was upset by how the most interesting characters were all men. It did not help that they shot the movie in the Nevada desert nor that her health was going downhill. The marriage ended in divorce. It is interesting to note that this was the last big-screen project Clark Gable and Marilyn Monroe starred in. He died twelve days after production wrapped up, whereas she died a year after it came out. Some critics think that this was her greatest film performance.
Daredevil – Jennifer Garner
Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner began working on Daredevil together in 2002. Back then, they were both in relationships with others. At the time, the actor was engaged to Jennifer Lopez. On the other hand, she was married to Scott Foley. The two of them have not admitted to being together on the set. However, he did admit that they fell in love while working on the superhero flick. “That’s where I found my wife,” shared the actor, “We met on Pearl Harbor, which people hate, but we fell in love on Daredevil.” One year after the release of the movie, he parted ways with JLo. Two months later, Garner divorced from Foley. In October 2004, Affleck and Garner appeared in public as a couple for the first time at a Red Sox game.
Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein – Kenneth Branagh
Kenneth Branagh served as the star and director of Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein. Back then, he and Emma Thompson made up a power couple. They had been one of the biggest couples in the British film scene. They had been husband and wife for five years when the movie went into production. He decided to act on his attraction to Helena Bonham Carter, which caused his wife to divorce him once word got out. The two ladies have since made peace with it. Thompson explained, “As Mike Nicholls [the film and theatre director] once said, and I’ve picked it up because I think it’s such a wonderful phrase – all blood under the bridge. You can’t hold on to anything like that. I think… pfft… It’s pointless. I haven’t got the energy for it. Helena and I made our peace years and years ago.”
Green Lantern – Ryan Reynolds
These days, Ryan Reynolds and Blake Lively make up one of the most adored Hollywood couples. But do you know how they got together? They have not been very forthcoming about it for a good reason. There is a good chance that their relationship began on the set of Green Lantern. The costars were seen in New York City back then. It sounds likely that their friendship turned into another thing altogether, leading to the end of their respective relationships. In those days, she was dating Penn Badgely. Meanwhile, Reynolds was married to Scarlett Johansson. The stars tied the knot in 2012.
Dream House – Rachel Weisz
Did you know that Rachel Weisz was once in a relationship with Black Swan director Darren Aronofsky? In fact, they had been together for almost a decade when she landed a role in Dream House. Daniel Craig, her costar, was engaged to marry Satsuki Mitchell at the time. The two stars were unable to ignore their sizzling chemistry. However, neither of them has said that the project led to their breakups with their respective partners. The actress, however, has been open about that point in her life. “I worried about so many things, and it was hard for me to feel happy or understand what made me happy. Once you reach your forties, you know where to look,” she said. Craig and Weisz went public with the relationship not long after they finished production. They even got married seven months later!
Stage Beauty – Billy Crudup
Mary Louise Parker and Billy Crudup might not have been married, but their relationship had been eight years strong. Not only that, but she was also seven months into her pregnancy with the baby. In the end, he decided to leave her for Claire Danes in 2005. She was his leading lady in Stage Beauty. Parker discussed what happened in her 2015 memoir “Dear Mr. You.” On the other hand, Danes also talked about what it was like for her. She admitted, “I was just in love with [Crudup] and needed to explore that, and I was 24… I didn’t quite know what those consequences would be.”
House Of Wax – Chad Michael Murray
Teenagers were taken aback when they heard what Nick Carter had to say on Ryan Seacrest’s radio show in 2006. According to him, his girlfriend Paris Hilton got intimate with House of Wax costar Chad Michael Murray on the movie set. On top of that, the actor was newly married to his One Tree Hill costar Sophia Bush. When the singer dropped the bomb on the air, the couple had been only five months into the marriage. They split up immediately and finalized the proceedings in a matter of months. In 2014, Bush explained what happened without talking about the alleged affair with the hotel heiress. The actress shared, “We were two stupid kids who had no business being in a relationship in the first place. To all the other co-stars who’ve worked it out, more power to you.”
Northern Lights – Leann Rimes And Eddie Cibrian
Do you like The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills? If this were the case, we are sure that you know Northern Lights. This Lifetime Movie was the topic of drama on the reality TV show, after all.

When word got out, at last, both Cibrian and Rimes got divorced. In 2011, the two of them walked down the aisle to make things official.

The director of Titanic and Avatar is none other than James Cameron. He and Linda Hamilton had only been nine months into their marriage when he fell for someone else. They stayed married for two more years, but it had been hard on her. She told The Telegraph, “The parading around, the lunches, the stress of being with Jim during the Titanic days – for years I could barely get make-up on, I was shaking so hard because every award show we had was terrible.” While she was very in love with him, she said that they had many problems in private. He was able to move on quickly after the divorce. He tied the knot with Suzy Amis, an actress he met on the set of Titanic.

After the separation, the actress filed for shared custody of Jack, their 8-year-old son. He talked about what the experience had been like for him at the time. “It’s kind of hard to ignore when you’re at a grocery store, and you’re like, checking out and those magazines on the side [feature] a photo of [Ryan and Quaid] with a little paper rip thing. If they hadn’t told me about the divorce, I would’ve been like ‘What’s that?’ as a kid,” he told US Weekly. There is no doubt that it had been a difficult point in his life, but he has remained close with both of his parents. In the end, however, Ryan and Crowe did not last long together.
